Normal value review process

At the initiation of this review, on November 9, 2023, the CBSA sent dumping and subsidy requests for information (RFI) to Tak International Trading (Tianjin) Co., Ltd. The information was requested for purposes of determining normal values, export prices and an amount for subsidy applicable to subject goods exported to Canada.

On January 11, 2024, TAK and Shandong Huitong Industrial Manufacturing Co. (SHIM), the producer of the subject goods, provided responses to the dumping RFIFootnote 1. No responses to the subsidy RFI were provided. The response to the dumping RFI from SHIM was considered incomplete. The CBSA sent a deficiency letter to SHIM on January 25, 2024 and provided until February 8, 2024 to submit a complete response. On February 6, 2024, counsel for SHIM requested a two week extension to the due date which was granted by the CBSA. On February 26, 2024, counsel for SHIM indicated that they will not be providing a response to the deficiency letter. On March 6, 2024, the record for this review was closed.

The CBSA did not receive any case briefs or reply submissions from interested parties with respect to this review. All the information submitted on the record was considered for the conclusion of this review.

Normal values and amount of subsidy

As the CBSA did not receive a complete response to the dumping RFI from the producer of the goods, the normal values for Tak International Trading (Tianjin) Co., Ltd. will be determined pursuant to the ministerial specification, under section 29 of SIMA, by advancing the export price of the goods by 96.4%.

As the CBSA did not receive responses to the subsidy RFI, the amount for subsidy for Tak International Trading (Tianjin) Co., Ltd. will be determined pursuant to the ministerial specification, under subsection 30.4(2) of SIMA. The countervailing duty will be equal to 641.35 Renminbi per metric tonne.

Importer responsibility

Importers are reminded that it is their responsibility to calculate and declare their anti-dumping and countervailing duty liabilities. If importers are using the services of a customs broker to clear importations, the brokerage firm should be advised that the goods are subject to SIMA measures and be provided with sufficient information necessary to clear the shipments. To determine their anti-dumping and countervailing liabilities, importers should contact the exporter(s) to obtain the applicable normal values and amount of subsidy. For further information on this matter, refer to Memorandum D14-1-2, Disclosure of Normal Values, Export Prices, and Amounts of Subsidy Established under the Special Import Measures Act.

The Customs Act (Act) applies, with any modifications that the circumstances require, with respect to the accounting and payment of anti-dumping and countervailing duties. As such, failure to pay the duties within the prescribed time will result in the application of the interest provisions of the Act.
